About

My Journey

I am often asked "What got you started doing this?". It sounds funny, but this journey started in the spring of 2014. I had always wanted to learn to can and preserve food. My thinking was that I would be a little more self reliant and be able to give my family better tasting and more nutritional meals. Well, I started researching proper technique and how to can specific foods. Along the way I ran into many DIY bath and body recipes. I thought to myself, "Oh that must be difficult and time consuming. There is no way that works the same as XYZ Brand" and quickly moved on. Summer went by and I learned to can our favorite foods.

Soon after, I began thinking of Christmas gifts and how I could bring a more traditional Christmas to life. I wanted to see handmade gifts opened, not all the ruckus over the most popular video game or electronic gadget. I decided to make traditional stockings for my grandchildren but there was one obstacle. I did not own and had not used a sewing machine since home economics class (does that give my age away?). Again, I researched and practiced until I was satisfied that I would be able to make a stocking worthy of showing to another human being. During my research, I again ran across many DIY bath and body products. This time I thought "Hmm, maybe" I finished the stockings and was again on the hunt for handmade gifts. I was looking for gifts to give to my team at work. I wanted gifts that would allow them to take time for themselves but I realized that many of them work full time, have children and take care of others in their lives. I knew they would not take much time to decompress and relax since their lives were busy and full. I wanted to give them something that they could use and be able to pamper themselves in just a moment or two. LOTION! WONDERFUL, SILKY, SMELLS GOOD LOTION! Hmm, what fragrance would be relaxing? LAVENDER! That's it! I'll make them lavender lotion! I started researching handmade lotion and other bath and body products. Oh my goodness, there are thousands of them. I picked one that seemed not too difficult and set out on this wonderful experiment.

My first batch was a greasy mess. I decided to try a few different ingredients until I came up with a mixture that was just right. I also found some other recipes that I thought would make good handmade gifts. I ended up with a small gift bag of handmade bath and body products. I, hesitantly, gave these to my teammates. Within a few days, they were asking where they could buy this. I informed them that I made them. They encouraged me to consider selling my products. After much deliberation I decided to give this crazy idea a whirl. I have been creating and improving my product recipes since.


I am a registered nurse by profession and love to take care of others. We, as caregivers, tend to overlook our own needs in order to meet the needs of others. My products are designed to be used in your own bathroom to allow you to take care of yourself so you can better take care of others. I know some of you are saying "Yeah, right! Like I have time for that!" I understand! This is why I created my bath and body products. It would be easy enough to pick your favorite scent and have a product custom made that you could pamper yourself with every time you applied it! The products are my own formulations with high quality ingredients, made with you in mind and how I can assist you in pampering yourself. Even if it is only for a few moments, while applying a lotion or lip balm, that time you steal away for a quick shower or bath. You deserve to take care of yourself! You deserve to be pampered! You are worth it! Allow me to create something just for you, in your favorite scent.

Frequently asked questions
How do you make your soap?

My soap making process is called Room Temperature/Oven Process. I use my ingredients at room temperature and then place it in the oven to force a “gel” stage. This process allows me to obtain a harder bar in a shorter period of time. Lye (sodium hydroxide) is a must when making soap from scratch. A chemical process, called saponification, occurs between the oils and the lye. This process uses all the lye to produce the soap. So, in the end product, there is no lye left. I use extra oils (superfatting) to make sure my bars are moisturizing and leave your skin soft and well nourished. All of the oils I use are unrefined, natural oils.

How do you ship?

I will only use USPS unless you contact me prior to placing your order to request an alternate shipping company.

Are your products all natural?

I use natural unrefined oils in all products. Typically, I use essential oils for fragrances that are derived from natural ingredients. I do offer fragrances that are synthetic but do not contain phthalates, parabens or formaldehyde. I carefully choose fragrances that do not contain ingredients that may cause sensitivities. If you have concerns about a fragrance please feel free to contact me. I will be happy to discuss your concerns.
I offer both natural and synthetic colors. If you would like your product made with only natural colors, please do not hesitate to contact me or leave a message in the "note to seller" area.
I do use a preservative in any product that contains water. Otherwise it will mold and grow bacteria.

Do you offer returns?

Due to the nature of bath and body products, I do not offer returns. However, your satisfaction is very important to me. If, for some reason, you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact me within 3 days of receipt. I will work diligently to solve any concerns or issues.

If your package arrives damaged, please take a picture and attach it to a message to seller. I will need it to file a claim with USPS.

Do you offer refunds?

Refunds will be on a case by case basis and will not include shipping.

My shipping seems high, what's the deal?

Rest assured, any shipping overage greater than $2.00 will be refunded. I have measured and weighed each item to ensure that shipping charges are as accurate as possible. On the rare occasion, shipping can be off a bit. If you believe you are being over charged for shipping, please contact me and I will be happy to look this over and reweigh the item(s).

How, on earth, can I choose from all these fragrances?

If you are having difficulty choosing a fragrance, I will, graciously, assist you. Just send me a message with the type of fragrance you like (fruity, floral, woodsy, fresh, clean) and I will help you narrow it down.

Do you list all of your ingredients?

Absolutely! I feel my customers need to have all the information I can give them to make an informed decision concerning the products they choose to purchase. Besides, it is the law.

I can't find my favorite scent, what do I do?

Send me a message. I can not possibly list all the scents I have available. If you are having trouble finding a specific fragrance, just ask. Chances are I have it available.

Custom and personalized orders

I prefer to make your items just the way you like them. If you need a specific ingredient, or have allergies to a listed ingredient, please feel free to contact me. I will work with you to get a product specific to your needs. There is no charge for this service.
